DEAR GUESTSThe 3 Chimneys Guest House is a charming Victorian Villa, built in 1900 and is packed full of original features such as, Oregon pine floors, lead pressed ceilings and many more.It was home to General Louis Botha in 1914. (Anglo-Boer war)Godwin & Joyce, your Hosts (owner operated), have newly renovated, extended and decorated the establishment, being sympathetic to the era but with your comfort in mind. Our vision is still evolving!It consists of 6 en-suite rooms of various sizes with an aim to accommodate the single business man/woman and families alike. Camping cot available extra and can fit in most rooms.We are renown for our personalized delicious meals and offer our set 3 course 'candlelight dinner' (Mrs Bucket :D) as well as a fresh fully cooked English breakfast in our dining room or in the tree shaded, bird friendly courtyard overlooking the swimming pool. (A kiddies menu always available)Our bar is fully licensed! Relax and enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the guest lounge (in front of a roaring fire in winter). There are 'board games' too & watch your favourite program/sport on a large plasma TV with full 'DStv service'. A 'grassed swing play area' has just been added for the kiddies.Our rooms are comfortable, beautifully decorated & spotlessly clean, air conditioned (Room 6 exception, has industrial ceiling fan) and offer tea/coffee facilities, bottled water, hairdryers, DStv 'hotel bouquet' (due to popular demand we have just added 'kyknet' and disneyJ'), Wi-Fi and mini desks for the businessman/woman.

You are welcome to use our fridge/freezer, iron and “microwave facilities at off peak times in the kitchen.” Laundry by arrangement (for long stays).Your safety is also our concern.

We enjoyed our stay. The old house is beautifully kept. The parking is somewhat of a challenge. Our room was comfortable. A few guests were noisy till after 23:00. The breakfast was good. I hope the B&B can be maintained.

We stayed in room no 2. This is next to the road. Try to avoid this room as the N1 passed next to you with lots of noise from passing trucks. Clean and spacious. No hot water in the shower. No complimentary soap or shampoo. Nescafe classic in room

"What room you book won't matter because they'll put you where they please regardless of your booking."
"Twin room with the shower at the front of the guest house. There were trucks passing all night, but it didn't affect our sleep"
"Room opposite Pool, but other rooms are also great."
"Further back in the house away from the main street would be better"
"Think the outside rooms are better. There are no squeecky floors to annoy anyone and its close to the pool."
